CEO Panel - Driving Growth in Offshore Wind
GWEC'S GLOBAL MARKETS THEATRE AT WINDENERGY HAMBURG
Over the past decade, offshore wind has grown from its Northern European roots to become a crucial pillar of the energy transition for countries across the globe. 2021 was a record year for the industry with 21GW installed. While the figures should be celebrated, the rate of build out needs to continue to be twice that amount on a year on year basis if we are to remain under the 1.5 degree global warming goal.
On this panel, senior officials from the industry’s leading offshore wind companies unpack some of the issues that the industry is facing in achieving these goals. This panel will focus on:
- How are we matching supply and demand?
- How do we create a win-win with the ecological environment?
- Which innovations help offshore wind?
- What are the trade-offs of local supply development?
